Draft Complete…

Draft Complete…

It has been too long since I last wrote anything on my blog. This virtual space has been neglected during 2022. I am far from happy with this, but the truth is that I just haven’t had the time.

The first six months of this calendar year have been spent trying to complete my book on Wrexham AFC during their Football League years (1921-2008). I have finally finished my first draft and it is now with proof readers in the hope of getting it ready for a Xmas release. I was a bit worried for a time back there. It seemed that I would miss the lucrative boat if the current team got promotion back to the Football League. I need not have worried though, as in true Wrexham style, we fucked it up again to spend yet another season in the non-league doldrums.

I still have plenty of work to do on this forthcoming title, but I wanted to drop my readers’ a line to reassure you that I am still in the land of the living. The staffing situation that has been a problem for so long, finally seems to be getting better with the recruitment of two contracted members of staff and four additions to my bank staff.

I am still trying to get the green light to purchase the exercise machine that will make such a big difference to my life and hopefully add a few years to my life expectancy. More about this exciting project can be found here. 

Please watch this space for some new developments as I need to update the design of this webpage as I try to develop my brand and promote my three books.

Before anyone asks, no I am not enjoying this bloody hot weather as being stuck in a wheelchair all day just makes me sweaty and causes incredible itches when I finally peel my jeans off at the end of an evening. Bring on the winter months…

So that is your lot for now as I get back to the final slog of the book in a beautiful Boris-free zone. This is only clouded by the nagging uncertainty of who is successor will be. No doubt about the absolute worst choice – Jacob Rees-Mogg – and there should be no surprise that he would be the choice of one of my former heroes John Lydon. This is a creative genius who I once admired greatly as the king of anarchy, but his spectacular decline in my estimations has included an advertisement for Country Life butter, and appearance on a reality TV show, letting me down when meeting him at a book signing and now this bizarre admiration for a right-wing tool.

Anyway, as the world in which I used to believe, continues to crumble, I will try to make the most out of this situation that I find myself in. Keep your eyes peeled for future developments.
